with 303 electoral votes, florida is still up in the air although the president does have a lead there right now of half of a percentage point. now, it's important to note that obama took nearly every swing state, including colorado, ohio, pennsylvania virginia, and wisconsin. those last three really contributed to his win and to the fact that we were able to call the race relatively early last night. if you remember yesterday, there was speculation that the count could go on for several days in the event of a close race. the popular vote is very close at 50.2% to 48.2, just a difference of two points there but with nearly 100-point spread in the electoral vote, it's really no contest. congressional seats democrats did not gain control of the house, which was to be expected, but they did maintain control of the is that the, picking up seats in indiana and massachusetts, a big win there for elizabeth warren against scott brown. we're still waiting on results from montana and north dakota but departments have the lead right now. the two independents, king from maine and sanders fro

think by this hour while they're still counting votes in florida and made for the next week -- there is an even greener light. we know.what the president was reelected and democrats picked up seats in the senate which is contrary to what anybody in washington i think thought even as late as today. the house is going to stay roughly the same. absent breaking news, i bring you know prescind returns from florida. i would like to spend more time on why this has happened and what it means for us going forward. i share the admiration all around 4 president obama's campaign team. they were technically close to perfect in the first responsibility of a campaign team, that is to identify and turn out voters. the planned it and executed it, and it every step of the way, they knew what votes they needed and went out and got them. they began before election day thinking favorable votes in states where they had put people on the ground to produce. take ileus appear -- technically a superb operation. perhaps some people will think by the fourth or fifth visit -- it did work. the point i wa
. virginia, pennsylvania, ohio, florida, iowa and nevada are all states that harbor a lot of swing voters. so folks here they want to make sure they encourage to vote democrat. >> the main thrust to all day long is to get out the vote obviously. we have been doing this for a while and today is crunch day so we want to get people ensure they are getting to the polls. >> reporter: now last night republicans were just as bessy at their headquarters in contracosta county trying to get the word out about mitt romney and they participated in phone banking and noticed a surge in republican enthusiasm. >> overnight, after that first debate, the energy level and volunteers have soared. and people have started to call and coming in and wanting to help. >> the election is very close. the polls are showing even in the race for rickey gillas within one point. >> reporter: republicans say a come from behind win is doable and they are hopeful and thefeeling among democrats that president obama needs to remain in office because they want him to finish what he started. now we are told here at the democratic h
journal/maris poll shows obama leading by six points. it's also close in florida. in this poll, obama has a two-point edge. that's within the sampling error. but a mason dixon poll shows obama trailing romney by six percentage points, so a mixed picture there from two different polls in such a key state. >> democrats are hoping, they're only three days away from taking back control of the u.s. house, but as athena jones reports, they face an uphill battle. >> republicans won control of the house in 2010. riding a wave of victory by tea party-backed candidates carrying a message of fiscal conservatism and strong opposition to obama care. so what's going to happen this time around? >> it's all got to go! >> back in september, nancy pelosi had high hopes for her party's prospects. >> we have a very excellent chance to take back the house. >> so did republican house speaker john boehner. >> i continue to feel confident about house republicans' chances of holding on to our majority. >> republicans have 242 seats to the democrats' 193. so democrats need a net gain of 25 seats to win the majorit
last week's presidential election. yesterday, florida, which was the final state to have a win declared, went to president obama. here's how the final electoral map looks with florida's 29 electoral votes, the president raises his total to $332 to mitt romney's 206. the president defeated romney by about 74,000 votes in florida. unlike some elections past, this time florida was not the state that determined which candidate won. some say the reason it took so long for florida to count the votes was because there just wasn't enough time for early voting. >> took almost a week. pretty long time. >> they run on their own time out there. their own clock. >> you would know. >>> the time right now is 6:07. coming up, two powerful earthquakes, including one felt in parts of virginia this weekend. >>> construction project on a bridge that could impact your drive. >>> and enjoy the warm weather while it >>> check out this snowfall in utah. several drivers got stuck in the snow. they had to call a tow truck for help. drivers had to use chains on their tires or use their four wheel drive to get thr
